Austrian Cold Painted Bronze Study 'Lizard' by Franz Bergman

About

Exquisite early 20th century Austrian bronze study of a large curled lizard with excellent naturalistic cold painted color and fine hand finished detail, signed with the Bergman 'B' in an amphora vase, numbered and stamped 'Geschutzt'. Franz Bergman ~ Bohemian, 1838 ~ 1894 ~ Bergman was born in Gablonz, Northern Bohemia where he worked as a metalwork chaser and finisher. He came to Vienna where he founded a small bronze factory in 1860. His son, Franz Xavier Bergman ~ Austrian, 1861-1936, opened a new foundry at the turn of the Century. Bergman bronzes are normally stamped with a capital 'B' placed in a twin handled vase and occasionally inscribed 'Gesch' or 'Geschutzt' referring to the model/design being 'registered' or copyrighted.
